  • Gorgeous lake views & sunsets, best sandy swimming and no lake weed at this end of the lake.
  • Playground across the road for the kids, boat ramp and stunning bush walk at end of road.
  • The real New Zealand bach experience. Very cute, original 1050s bach.

Located 20mins from Rotorua, 45mins from Whakatane, 1 hour from Tauranga.

This is an original 1950s bach. It is located on a one lane no exit road which is the only thing between you and the lake.

This end of the lake has the best swimming with a narrow sandy beach and lake floor with no fringing lake weed. Across the road is a playground, and an open grassed reserve on the lake front that is perfect for picnicking.

There is a boat ramp at the end of the road and there is plenty of room to park a boat on the section. This is a really beautiful setting with the dramatic bushed cliffs framing the lake end. At the end of the road is Hongi's track - a 40 minute walk through towering unlogged podocarp forest to Hinehopu's tree and Lake Rotoehu.

Around the corner is a 9 hole golf course. The famous Manupirua hot pools on Lake Rotoiti can be accessed by boat. For those without a boat, the Waitangi Soda Springs are a 10 minute drive away.

The bach is compact with 2 small bedrooms, a lounge, kitchen/dining and bathroom. It can sleep 6 - one bedroom has a Queen bed + and the other bedroom can sleep 4 in its two sets of single bunks.

No TV. DVD, internet.

Enjoy a really relaxing holiday with the kids.

    Excellent location with kids, playground directly across quiet road, parents can sit on deck & supervise. Batch would be great even in winter due to heat pump & fire.
